To the Craft of Fiction Class at the Paris Writers Workshop

Once in a while, we are lucky enough to meet people that encourage us and inspire us to continue pursuing whatever it is that we love.

I would like to dedicate a post and share a poem I wrote for my teacher and classmates at the Paris Writers Workshop. It is my way of saying, thank you.

NOTE: The names are listed in alphabetical order.

THANK YOU
The introductions, the handshakes
The smiles and the nods

The critiques, the honesty
The conversations and the laughs

Thank you for the time spent
In and out of class

Your friendships,
A remembrance that will forever last

So as we park our words in perfect places
Let hard work be our guide

And as we chase our dreams as writers
Let luck be on our side

Thank you, Mr. Chris Tilghman, Elena, Janet, John, Joy, Kamala,
Kristen, Meredith, Nicole, Oceane, Tom, and Veronica

We were a class at the beginning
By the end, a group of friends

Keep those pens busy
Until we meet again…
